Australian Law Firms
Some of the largest private-practice firms in Australia are:
Medium size firms usually operate under a similar structure to the large firms in that they provide a range of business-related legal services, although usually to smaller business clients.
Small firms tend to fall into two categories. The first type has a similar structure to the large-and-medium sized firms. They provide a range of legal services to business clients but on a much smaller scale in addition to providing legal services to individuals. The other type of small firm is often referred to as a “boutique” firm. These firms tend to specialise in a particular area of law and build a reputation being experts in their field. Clients tend to seek them out directly for their expertise, or alternatively, a large firm will outsource or refer work to these firms.
